Marmalade Tea Bread Recipe
Ingredients : Makes one 22 x 11cm
Butter or margarine
Soft light brown sugar
Chunky orange marmalade
Shreds of orange and lemon rind, to decorate
- Preheat oven to 160oC /
325oF / Gas 3. Lightly butter a 22 x 11cm loaf tin, then line
the base with greaseproof paper and grease the paper.
- Sift the flour, baking powder and
cinnamon together, toss in the butter, then rub in until the mixture
resembles coarse breadcrumbs. Stir in the sugar.
- In a separate bowl, mix together the
marmalade, egg and most of the milk, then stir into the flour mixture to
make a soft dropping consistency, adding more milk if necessary.
- Transfer the mixture to the tin and
bake for 1 1/4 hours, or until firm to the touch. Leave the cake to cool
for 5 minutes, then turn on to a wire rack, peel off the lining paper,
and leave to cool completely.
- Drizzle the glace icing over the top
of the cake and decorate with the orange and lemon rind.
